I am looking for a plan or step by step of a basic shed/workshop about 15×20 l can put up?
I was thinking of joining 2 sheds l have both are 10 ’ deep x 12 ft wide but they both have different roof lines.
Would it be possible to join the 2 of them and extend roof height, so when l put siding on to make look as one building to have roof line same?
Both sheds are built with the baby barn frames think height inside is 83 inches at peak.

If l cut outside walls off at point where roof line bends and attach 2×3’s or 2×4’s at each stud to take to 8 ft then build a reg gabble roof has anyone attempted this?
The shed with shorest height man down the road, when he built his nice 2 story barn/garage gave shed away so l hooked blazer up to the 10×12 shed pulled down my road home.
But before winter came removed rotten outside wall and roof plywood and floor plywood never got covered in plastic l stappled on since blew off.
I will take a picture of both sheds put on here tomorrow, maybe will show height and roof better hope to get a few idea’s so in 2-3 months caan do something.

My wife doesn’t want me to build a new building mainly want a outside workshop to much time cleaning up basement sawdust etc.
Combining the 2 sheds if l can extend roof would give me a 12 ft wide x 20 ft deep shop would like wider but better than now
